Teacher Pension Preferences: Pilot Study Results. Conference Paper 2009-14
Smith, Elizabeth Ettema; Guthrie, James W.
National Center on Performance Incentives, Paper prepared for "Rethinking Teacher Retirement Benefit Systems" (Nashville, TN, Feb 19-20, 2009)
Teacher pensions are fast becoming a significant issue in education policy. Mounting unfunded pension financial liability, likely larger numbers of retiring teachers, increasing mobility among existing teachers, and unfavorable comparisons with less generous private sector pension plans all contribute to putting pedagogues pensions in the public spotlight. Little is known, however, about the actual pension preferences of current and potential teachers. To this end, this paper provides results from an exploratory survey designed to probe the preferences of current and prospective teachers, the results of which may eventually illuminate the role of pensions in attracting and retaining a higher-quality teacher force. (Contains 4 figures.)
